Art On The Cheap - Again~


Today I wanted to share with you all another art project that I did on the cheap. (WARNING: copy cat alert)
Perhaps some of you have seen this sweet little framed Nest from Melissa at 320 Sycamore.

She was inspired by this sweet little Nest from the Nester herself!

Well, these have both been sitting in my idea files for a long time. Since a girl can NEVER have enough nests... I finally got the bug to put one of these beauties together this last week. Here's my version...



I had a shadow box frame lying around just begging to be used, so I found some scrapbook paper that lends itself well to the color scheme in my master, and then just hot glued the sweet little nest and eggs right on! Project total: less than $3!

Edited to add: I have had a lot of people asking, so ....I purchased both the little eggs and the nest at Michael's Craft.

Now go get your nest on!!!


Have a great Wednesday~

Every time I see one of these framed nests I can't help thinking how adorable they are. But, I'm wondering where y'all find the cute little nests to frame in the first place. I've never seen them around here.

So cute! I was gonna ask the same thing about the nest.

I just did a cheap art project too on my blog. I may just have to try this too. Love the little nest!

That is so cute. I am redoing my Living Room in bird houses, and that would go perfect. Thanks for the idea.

Very cute idea! I have been on a roll lately with original wall art, so maybe I could whip one of these babies up too!
